- Gruffydd Fychan II
Gruffydd Fychan II was Lord of
Glyndyfrdwyand Lord of CynllaithOwain c.1330-1369. As such, he had a claim to be hereditary prince of Powys Fadog.
The epithet 'Fychan' implies that his father was also called Gruffydd. However certain genealogical tables convey conflicting data. It has been thought that he was the "son" of
Madog Cryplwho died in 1304. However, for him to inherit the throne then and to rule "until 1369" seems unlikely. Other tables suggest his father was Gruffydd ap Madog Fychana son of Madog Fychan.Fact|date=May 2008
Most probably, he was the grandson of Madog Crypl, whose son Gruffydd was aged about six at his father's death, but already married. Gruffydd was still alive in 1343. [J. E. Lloyd, "Owen Glendower: Owen Glyn Dŵr" (Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1931), 9-15. ]
